recue technique and misc

a friend and I were practicing the rescue where you're parallel to the paddler that's stuck/inverted and you right their kayak. Her shoulder which has a history of injuries (dislocation, strain,etc) got wrenched again. I was able to do the rescue without too much straining but don't really feel proficient, my close arm reaching across my body that pushes down on her hull doesn't feel effective once the boat is part way up, should I have reversed the hand position and leaned WAY over to pull her up by my far arm?
On a deals topic just got my Lighting Bargain Bin paddles..these are good deals, check em out.
